Ice climbing and Brazilian economic history

Ice climbing and This American Life from Toby A. on Vimeo.

Yesterday I went and did a bit of moderate climbing on my own. I was listening to the ever brilliant This American Life on my iPod whilst doing so. If you have ever wondered why the Brazilian Real is called the 'Real' (as opposed to the 'fake'); or how the Fed makes and destroys money; then download the podcast, grab your ice axes and go, climb and learn.

Hmmm. Perhaps your ice climbing sessions are not strenuous enough! Now that you have more time we should have some cave sessions. Bearing down on small crimps when forcing your feet on polished footholds should cause a level of activity unsuitable for listening to American Life.
